Scope and policy

Dados publishes original articles in the field of social sciences. Submissions should be innovative and of social interest. Contributions may be submitted in Portuguese, Spanish, English and French. However, the articles will be published only in Portuguese and Spanish, with extended abstracts in French and English.

All papers submitted to Dados are acknowledged quickly and reviewed as rapidly as possible. They are initially scrutinised by the editor and the advisory board who decides whether they meet the scientific and editorial standards of the journal, and fit within the aims and scope of the journal. Those papers that pass this initial scrutiny are sent out to referees who are carefully selected on the basis of their expertise in the themes of the paper. All papers undergo double blind refereeing. Normally, at least two referees are used. Any needed modifications in the manuscripts’ structure or contents will be made in accordance with the authors. No additions or changes will be allowed after material has been printed.
